{{Protected soft redirect}} is used to create a soft redirect to an informative page on another web site, as an alternative to protecting the title of a deleted page. Adding this template does not by itself protect the page; only an administrator can do that. The talk page for a salted page should be either unprotected or redirected to another unprotected talk page.

The only required argument is link, whose value should be a double-bracketed interwiki link or a single-bracketed external link. site is the name of the site with the linked page, and because is a reason for salting the page.

Examples of use:

  • {{Protected soft redirect|because=it is a spam magnet|site=Wikipedia|link=[[wikipedia:Sildenafil]]}}
